Creating a Study Timetable Exams are not just about memory, they are about preparation and about awareness of what is expected of you. Some TIPS for creating your study timetable include -Reflect first on the best time that you study, is this straight after school or after you have had something to eat -Consider what subjects need the most study and revision. Estimate how many hours you need for each subject and try to match this with the hours available in your weekly planner. IMPORTANT TO HAVE A BALANCE OF SUBJECTS, DON’T JUST REVISE THE ONES THAT YOU LIKE
Creating a Study Timetable Use a template to draw up a study timetable. First block in all the extra-curricular activities and events that you have coming up. This should be an actual timetable that you can follow, it should be achievable Then block in study times, 50 min to an hour long sessions with ten minute breaks Use different colour for different subjects Include in your plan not only the subject that you are going to be studying but how you are going to study it. For example 1 hour of Biology, creating a mind map on cell division. History, timed past paper 1 hour 45 minutes
